    Default Java text book

    Hi,

    Can anybody please recommend me which is the best text book for Java? I am a beginner and I work on an application with graphics, JTables, automatic capturing screens of a map and displaying in a window....

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Take a look at the relevant sections in The Really Big Index. Not too wordy, have lots of executable code examples.

    Default Re: Java text book

    I'd recommend the Core Java series. Currently going through it and I've got to say if your looking for a thorough book on the basics and some good libraries this is it. If this is to advanced I'd recommend Java for Everyone:
    Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals (9th Edition) (Core Series): Cay S. Horstmann, Gary Cornell: 9780137081899: Amazon.com: Books
    Core Java, Volume II--Advanced Features (9th Edition) (Core Series): Cay S. Horstmann, Gary Cornell: 9780137081608: Amazon.com: Books
    Java For Everyone: Late Objects: Cay S. Horstmann: 9781118063316: Amazon.com: Books
